VITEK® 2 Compact is a fully automated system which guarantees excellence in routine microbial identification.
Increased productivity through automated identification
VITEK® 2 Compact is the result of years of bioMérieux experience in manual identification applied to an automated system.
VITEK® 2 Compact includes an extended identification database, which enables you to detect a larger range of microorganisms. All identification stages from reading to the recording of results are automated, optimizing workflow. As the system operates with bar-coded cards, full traceability is ensured and the risk of transcription errors is minimized.
With this system, both set-up and response time are reduced – time to result from 2 to 18 hours . VITEK® 2 Compact software is extremely intuitive and therefore requires less technician training, which results in higher productivity.
Advanced Colorimetry Technology™ for microbial identification
The efficiency of the VITEK® 2 Compact system relies on the advanced colorimetry technology : the system reads the latest generation VITEK test cards – containing 64 wells to ensure accuracy – every 15 minutes using three different wavelengths. With this technique, more data is analyzed, which increases results’ accuracy.
